Miami-Dade Democratic Party
 to Hold Rally to Fire-Up Democrats

Democratic leaders and activists gather to prepare for
 November 6th Election
  

Miami, FL - On the heels of the DNC 2012 Convention and anticipation of President Bill Clinton's arrival, the Miami-Dade Democratic Party will host a rally on Monday, September 10, 2012 at 7:00PM at American Legion Post #29, 6445 NE 7th Avenue, Miami. 

With less than one month before the October 9th registration deadline, the rally will serve to inform the press and the public about the newest developments of the "Voter Suppression Act of 2011".  The event will also motivate Democrats to support President Obama and all Democratic candidates on the November 6th ballot. 

Over the past two years, Florida has seen drastic changes to election laws and the voting process. These changes primarily disenfranchise and impact minority voters, students, and seniors.
